“You have the right to anything that’s not forbidden by the law”
Quoting from Catch-22, that is the most politically correct statement I’ve heard in my life. Seriously.
Singaporeans tell me “You can do anything, just don’t get caught”. lol.
One is telling you that you’re entitled to do anything that pleases you which the law doesn’t bother legislating, while the other one’s telling you to be an intelligent offender. Maybe my Singaporean friends should follow the Catch-22 principle. At least you don’t have to worry about being caught at all. The only thing is you’ll hafta know the law by heart. Which might be a tall order for the ordinary man who doesn’t know a thing about legal jargon or, hell, bother to read the news everyday.
Perhaps somebody can come up with a book that tells people which are the laws, or lack thereof, in Singapore that backs you up by being absent from the books. lol. There are so many ridiculous “offences” listed (and the atrocity of new items added to the list is increasing), I wish there’s a list of what I can do that won’t get me fined…
Criminal tendencies aside,
Akan Datang: I’m about to start selling novels from my personal collection from next week.. They’re mostly English publications that I bought over the last few years. I’m running out of space. Since everybody’s been asking to borrow books from me and I need to save up for a laptop, I might as well sell it to friends who’re willing to pay a token for them. I promise I’ll only sell good reads. 😉
